    Question How do I change the Date Format

    Advertisement



    I have a 7130g (on Vodafone).

    The date format is currently 'US' Style:

    short = MM/DD - e.g. 09/30
    long = Mmm DD, YYYY - e.g. Sep 30, 2006

    Is there a way to change to 'UK' Style:

    DD/MM & DD Mmm YYYY.

    In Settings > Date/Time I can see how to change the date but not the format.

    All help apprecioated.

    Thanks,
    RichA

    Hello RichA, welcome to pinstack. Im not sure, just checked on a 7100i and I found no way to change the format. We will see if anyone else knows.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Oddly enough, even though RIM is Canadian, they have failed to include basic non-US features such as this.

    Because in Canada, the proper standard for dates is dd mmmm yyyy, no punctuation.

    Yet, there is no setting to change this.

    As well, there is no Canadian dictionary for SureType. That is ultimately annoying. I'm not british and I'm not american either! Give me an option to choose "English (Canadian)"!!
